Eiffel Tower Skate Boards

shoes There's a reason for all of the super comfy casual clothes I've been posting this weekend. I'm currently writing a mini version of my thesis for this year, which means I'm spending all day cooped up on the lounge with my laptop drowning in orchestral scores, piccolo music, orchestration books, piccolo research and my own personal notes. When I'm doing this sort of stuff I want to be super comfy. Looking cute is just a bonus.

On the Board

There's only one reason I got dressed today. I decided to take my skate board out for a ride (if I hadn't done this, I probably would have stayed in my pyjamas all day) It's amazing how being on my board for an hour cleared my head.

Standing with Board

This is what I wore for skating. I picked up this jumper from the op shop last week. The shorts I have on underneath (believe it or not) are actually high waisted, although you can't tell cause my jumper is super long.


Moral of the story: If you've got the study blues, go for a walk. Makes everything better.

Straight on Head Shot

I also decided to photograph my "handbag essentials". I'm going to be honest, I'm a bit of a snoop. I can remember being 13 on the internet and finding the "post what's in your bag" phenomenon. I was endlessly fascinated. It wasn't a common thing for people to do back then either.

Beauty and fashion bloggers/vloggers do these types of posts/videos all the time now, and I figure I may as well satisfy a curiosity (Not that any of you will necessarily be curious about what's in my bag)

I'm going to be honest, this isn't so much a what's in my bag. It's more of an essential things that are always with me. I'm constantly switching bags throughout the week (when I have a long journey I tend to take a backpack which carries a lot more stuff so that I can be entertained/do work)

What's in my bag

This is the small bag I use most often. It was given to me by a close friend, and is the perfect size for my "bare essentials" handbag :)


If you found this interesting, let me know and I'll do a post on what I bring when I commute.
